Treasure Seekers Unite

Nov 1, 2010

An online community of independent ecommerce retailers has launched several new services in a bid to become even more useful to its network of online merchants. The improvements include a new website and an upgrade of its online marketplace. Treasure Seekers Unite is "A social network for buyers, sellers, and collectors of unique treasures," says site manager and owner, Angie Gunter, who adds, "Most of our members are online sellers who have joined to connect and share tips with each other."

TSU has over 450 seller members, with another 1,500 nonseller participants. The community offers a lot to those who participate. "Members can post photos of their items for sale, start their own blog, join forum discussions, and connect with like minded sellers via our interest groups, says Gunter. "All content is fed to search engines, so the more a member participates the better their exposure to the online world." Gunter is enthusiastic about the recent site improvements. "The most recent addition to our community is the new version of Netcarnation Community Marketplace," She says. Many sellers are familiar with the old version, the first to accept listings via this new application. Sellers can import their recent listings from Bonanza (formerly Bonanzle), eBay, Etsy, Ecrater, and Zazzle. Any visitor can share these products with their Facebook, Twitter, or Google Buzz friends with a click of a button," she adds.

Gunter, herself an online merchant, is busy migrating the community from to The new URL is not only simpler, but offers new features for buyers and sellers. Aside from a few premium services, Treasure Seekers Unite is free to join.
